Re: Rate Royal Rumble 2013
First things first, the night opened with the DR vs BS LMS match. Which was okay, nothing special but okay. Until the ending, when DR did the exact same thing to BS that Cena did to Batista a few years ago. So...a rehashed method, that basically ended the match quick and that was it. Personally the WHC hasn't been something I cared about in quite sometime, it almost feels on par with the ICC/US title, just thrown around and treated like crap.
So the next match was the Tag Team Match, which might I ad was nothing special. Daniel Bryan has a lot of potential to be up there with Dolph, Randy, and those others going for the WHC/WWE title. WWE has so many mid/low tier carders sitting around doing nothing, while Bryan/Kane take it. I love Team Hell No, but Bryan has a great future in the solo field, and Kane is retiring soon I'd assume. Regardless of that, the match was nothing special, something we'd see on Smackdown/Raw.
Next we continue to the RR the match I was hoping for. Going into this match...I feared one thing, and one thing only...and that's Cena winning. I knew if Cena won...that it would set in place Rock vs Cena rematch. So much for "Once in a lifetime" right WWE? I was happy to see Jericho, was really excited to see Ziggler last so long, heck I wouldn't have minded seeing Rybak got another massive push with a Rumble win to his name. But no...instead the overpushed Cena is already given another Main Event handed them him, and another Rumble win...as predicted. This basically setup a overly predicted main event.
So the main event...started off okay. I noticed the same thing I noticed with Rock/Cena last year at WM...Rock just gets tired WAY TOO fast. A lot of the match consisted of Punk just carrying the Rock. The match ended up with some nonsense black out shield attack which already made me facepalm...then I thought at that moment it was SAFE. Punk would win, and Rock/Cena would not be set in stone, but no Vince comes out with some dumb speech only to get interrupted by The Rock. Superman in this case to say "NO I'LL TAKE IT FROM HIM" and good golly gee the match is restarted. And similar to about 99% of the matches with Cena, the Rock takes a massive beating then kicks out, only to get 1 God Mode counter on CM Punk and pin him with one peoples Elbow. Congratulations.
5/10 (Not interested in Rock vs Cena #2...) "ONCE IN A LIFETIME JK TWICE IN A ROW!!"
